Today was our chance for our 15 minutes of fame.
A few months ago, my wife got her purse stolen out of her car, while it was sitting in the garage (with the door open) waiting for her to take the kids to her parents house.
They got her license, credit cards, checkbook, car keys, camera, etc.
Criminals went on a shopping spree, using mostly her checks all over town. We reported to the police, not expecting much to happen.
Apparently, the woman who stole it, was stealing clothes from Nordstrom's and using her ID
to return the clothes for cash at another Nordstroms. They got a little pissed and got the police involved.
Yesterday, a representative from Enterprise rent a car came to the house to ask for the return of their car (!), rented using her ID
. She reported it to the detective assigned to the case.
We received the news that the perps. got caught tonight, blocks from our house, and our local news station came to our house to interview her about her experience.
We are happy that these idiots were caught.
